La Aduana: 1995 Range Rover Classic

There is a reason that the first generation of Range Rovers were produced almost unchanged for twenty five years. In addition to being capable and accomplishing such feats as winning their class at the Paris-Dakar Rally and being among the first vehicles to cross the Darien Gap, their rugged beauty continuously captured people’s hearts and kept a loyal following of the “Classic” style. In fact the Range Rover was almost immediately recognized for its wonderful lines when in 1970, the Louvre Museum displayed one as a piece of art reasoning that it was an “exemplary work of industrial design”. Unfortunately, along with their timeless looks and great capabilities the Range Rover is known for another thing, terrible reliability. The advertisements for most used models will include statements about how they have “normal” electronic failures or the “usual” oil leaks, but to a lesser degree. Luckily the Rover we’ve found today isn’t anything like most used models.

This pristine 1995 Range Rover Classic has only 55,000 miles on it and looks like it just rolled off the assembly line. The LWB, or long wheel base model, gives you an extra nine inches in chassis length and a larger 4.2 liter V8, which provides the perfect amount of power for this truck. It is a single owner vehicle and has all the factory options available in full working condition. The owner kept everything completely original with the exception of an upgraded spring suspension and shocks, used replace the notoriously temperamental air suspension. This vehicle includes all of its records and original manuals which appear to be in just as great of shape as the truck. If you’re looking for a Range Rover Classic with all the heritage and none of the headache, this could be the one for you.
